Bross Bagels has gained a lot of fans since opening in Edinburgh last year and now the team behind the successful brand are giving ­residents in the West End the chance to sample their wares.

Situated at 19 Queensferry Street, the new shop will be serving ­breakfast bagels, lunches and new combinations specially designed for the new location. The store will also serve as the base for all of their office catering throughout the city.

Established in August 2017, founder Larah Bross originally lived in New York where she was used to a bagel store on every street corner.

When she relocated to Edinburgh she didn’t want to settle for supermarket bagels – instead she teamed up with Breadshare organic bakery to create Bross Bagels.

From there she introduced her authentic Montreal-style bagels to Edinburgh’s residents from her original bakery in Leith, with each home-made bagel boiled in honey water before baking, as well as being organic and kosher.

Talking about the opening of the West End store, Ms Bross said: “When I opened my very first ­Bross Bagels in Portobello in summer 2017, I honestly never knew it would take off the way it has.

"There was such a high demand from our customers to open at the West End following our Portobello and Leith shops being such a hit.

“When a space came up in the West End that was too good an opportunity to miss out on. Our new shop is in an amazing location for breakfast bagels and lunches with special combos just for our Westside bagel lovers.”

Doors at the Queensferry Street shop will open Monday to Friday from 7.30am and Saturday 10am-3pm, and will offer customers breakfast bagels, Bross blend coffee and even heated walls during the colder months.
